Contagion Clasp Discussion

I would think Freed from the Real would be thematic and an excellent combo. Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine both sound like cursed items you would find on a skeleton ship. I think these 3, at least, should come out of maybe board

Oh! Kalain is one of my favorite legends to come out of the new set, and I'm happy to see people brewing already!
I feel like your deck is a little unfocused. Especially since these colors don't lend themselves to a lot of the +1/+1 counter support you're working with, and as is, you're running more creatures than most mono-green commander decks I see. Here's the main things I would look at when adding/removing cards from the deck:
1.) This deck seems to want to 'go wide' with +1/+1 counters...it wants to put a few counters on all it's creatures instead of stacking a bunch on one for maximum effect. Cards like Contagion Clasp and Animation Module might work well here to bolster the army efficiently.
2.) Your creatures are relatively small, especially if you don't yet have many +1/+1 counters or the treasures to make them. More removal might be important to get your recur-able treasure generators, like Captain Lannery, through. Terminate , Tragic Slip and Power Word Kill may seem unimpressive, but they do the job. And being that cheap, they run little risk of making you use your precious treasure mana.
3.) The cards that key off of sacrificing the treasure tokens or other permanents are probably the greatest strength of your deck. You can play this up by including fetch lands like Evolving Wilds or even things like Carrion Feeder so you can get extra value off your creatures + Ozolith.
4.) A lot of the treasure generation in here isn't great, so optimizing what you have will be important. Replacing some of the less impactful pieces with card draw/ramp will help you get to the good stuff faster. Greed and Outpost Siege are excellent budget suggestions from amongst the ones mentioned above, and Sign in Blood and Thrill of Possibility are more, less mana-intensive options.
I would trim out a few of the 'Other' category cards you're packing for the suggestions. Maga and Krenko are cute with +1/+1 counters, but if we're only getting 1 as an ETB, it's not that impressive (yes, we might be getting more, but I prefer to look at the 'fail' case), and since most of our creatures are small, Ashling is more likely to wipe our board than our opponent's, which is awful for us.

TheVectornaut, thank you so much for the feedback! Having played the deck in my casual circle I can say that your suggestions are definitely keen ones, I'll definitely be implementing Voltaic Key into the next version. The Energy Chamber 's are kinda nice, but just as you'd observed they really have only been helping out the Titan Forge and occasionally pumping a few +1/+1's onto the Myr's, but it's definitely a weak link, think I'll cut it to 2x.
Contagion Clasp is interesting, gives me something on the enemy board to proliferate as well, I might give that a go and see how it turns out. I think I'll try siding out 2x of my Thoughtcast 's for Tezzeret's Gambit to see which I prefer, being able to draw 2 for often 1 Blue is nice, but the added proliferate could be a deal maker, I'll have to see how I like it!
Seriously great suggestions, I'll take them under advisement!

I don't have any experience with Titan Forge but from playing with Sydri, Galvanic Genius in EDH, I know that ways to untap artifacts tend to be quite strong in cases whre you have a lot of activated abilities that require tapping. The two big ones would be Voltaic Key and Unwinding Clock . If I had to cut something, I'd maybe say Energy Chamber since it has no tap/untap synergy and can only get you one charge counter a turn. Chamber is better with exactly Forge because you don't have to pay the 3 mana repeatedly, but Key would be better for basically everything else. I do really like the proliferate idea here too since it works across your entire board. Some other options in that direction could be Contagion Clasp or a swap of Thoughtcast for Tezzeret's Gambit .
